A Cleveland man is credited with

several years ago, was attracted by the

over the cut-off. Last night trains

SO SAYS CONDEMNED MURDERER
JUST BEFORE HE PAYS PEN
ALTY ON GALLOWS.
San Francisco, Jan. 12. Mark A.
Wilkins, who was convicted of the
murder of Mrs. Vernie Carmen, wjith
whom he eloped from Kansas City In
1907, was hanged at San Quentin
prison at 10:31 a. m. today. The body
was pronounced dead and taken from
the scaffold at 10:17.
Just before being taken from the
death chamber, Wilkins made the fol
lowlngi statement to Warden Hoyle:
"I want you to say for me, as my
last words on earth that I am an Inno
cent man, and have no fear of death.
Express my deep gratitude to those
who have been active In trying to se
cure a pardon."
Wilkins slept soundly all night. He
dressed carefully and announced to his
guard that he was ready. Two priests
spent the hour preceding the execu
tion alone with him.
The condemned man walked with a
firm step to the death chamber, where
a small group of physicians, prison
officials and newspaper representa
tives were waiting. The cap and
noose were adjusted and. the trap
sprung in less than three minutes. A
bit of metal, sharpened to a razor edge
was found In Wilkins' prayer book af

King's "Fake" Gold Plate.
The first point of Interest Is sug
gested by the title of the volume,
"The Gold and Silver of Windsor
Castle." Whenever a royal banquet
at Windsor or Buckingham palace is
described in the newspapers the writ
er says that "the sideboards were
adorned with the famous gold plate."
In point of fact, there are only three
pieces of gold plate In the Windsor
collection, two of them a small snlver
ten and one-half inches In din meter
and a cup and cover nine and one
half inches high, both dating from the
first year of George IV, and It Is a
melancholy fact that the former was
made from a number of gold snuff
boxes presented to the Duke of York
by various cities and by the Univer
sity of Oxford. All the rest of the
"gold" plate Is really silver gilt, and
Mr. Jones' book brings out the curious
fact that most of the gilding, even of
the silver pieces that had been made
a century or two earlier, was done by
George IV's goldsmiths, Rundell and
Bridge. London Times.

without any information as to the
quantity of heat that would be required
to produce a similar amount of light
